Separation of sedimentary micron-sized particles for palaeoceanography and calcareous nannoplankton biogeochemistry.
A protocol is described for separating sub-20 microm-sized particles contained in sedimentary rocks into size fractions. Geochemical data from manually isolated foraminifera are commonly used in the interpretation of marine palaeoenvironments; problems associated with the isolation of calcareous nannofossils hampers their geochemical exploitation. However, geochemistry performed on calcareous nannofossil monotaxic assemblages should provide more meaningful data sets than those generated from ...Expand abstract
